We will meet for at least four sessions and hopefully continue meeting seasonally to check in with one another. The four sessions are ordered somewhat like the following:
1. In the initial assessment I will:
Review your answers to the questionnaire that I will have given to you and received prior to your first visit.
Use various diagnostic strategies to determine the direction to go when designing your personalized yoga routine.
Take into consideration classic Viniyoga concepts such as whether or not you would benefit from an active, strength-promoting therapy or a pacifying and relaxing routine (or a little of both).
Take your pulse and look at your tongue so that I can also honor your Ayurvedic constitution when designing your personal yoga practice.
Include in your routine a focus on your particular healthcare needs, taking into account your digestive patterns, your tension areas, your weak areas and even subtler aspects such as thought patterns and emotional/spiritual considerations.
Begin guided breath inquiry and I will ask you to keep a journal of your breath observations.
2. Follow-up visit one: I will review your breath journal and we will continue with guided breath inquiry and then add movement to the breath.
3. Follow-up visit two: I will present a printed rough draft of your personalized yoga routine including pictures and details for each posture, breath exercise, mantra, etc.
4. Final visit: I will record this visit as I guide you through your routine. Within a week I will give you a recording of your routine.
